It’s nearly 1,000 miles from Indianapolis, Indiana to Daytona Beach, Florida. But Koren Easterday has learned that banking with Elements Financial is not limited by location.
A Florida resident, Koren was introduced to Elements at a National Sales Meeting with her employer, Allied Solutions. Headquartered in Carmel, Indiana, Allied Solutions is a dedicated partner of Elements and offers credit union membership as an employee benefit. Many of their employees, including Koren, live and work across the United States and travel regularly.
While she has banked with credit unions since she was in college, Koren's relationship with our credit union began when Allied Solutions started matching contributions to employee Health Savings Accounts with Elements. After opening her HSA, she discovered the many other benefits of banking with Elements. She explains that she expanded her relationship “to include a Visa Credit Card, High Interest Checking, and a Money Market Savings Account.” Since then, she and her husband have also trusted Elements to become their primary financial institution, including connecting direct deposit to our credit union. Thanks to the great rates and best-in-class service that they received, she explains that “today, Elements has nearly all of our money!” Their finances continue to grow and compound because of the high deposit rates and their nearly exclusive use of our cash rewards credit card – where she is always looking to “maximize the available cash back.”
Being in Florida, it is so important to me to be able to do everything online.
While Elements is headquartered in Indianapolis, our credit union has members in all 50 states and in 50 foreign countries. Easterday has found that banking with Elements is just as easy in Florida as it is in Indiana, thanks to our digital banking tools. She explains, “Being in Florida, it is so important to me to be able to do everything online.” Easterday takes advantage of both online and mobile banking, calling them “very intuitive and user-friendly systems.”
If you are eligible for membership and have not taken advantage of what Elements offers, using things such as geography as an excuse, then you are missing out! Elements makes it easy to do business with them from pretty much anywhere.
While great rates often attract members, the service and financial education that Elements provides retains them. Koren says Elements is a “financial resource that really is interested in helping their members save, earn, and learn.” She hopes that others will take advantage of our credit union, saying “if you are eligible for membership and have not taken advantage of what Elements offers, using things such as geography as an excuse, then you are missing out...Elements makes it easy to do business with them from pretty much anywhere!” Koren, along with thousands of other members, bank with Elements wherever they live and travel.
